Hi! Anthony, I was wondering where you managed to get the drawings for this wonderful little model from as I would like to build one as an interlude to building the tug wattle,

I do like regional fishing boats and would put together a collection from around the country so this size is just about right,

thank you

Hi! Kim, I have just noticed there is a page on the gaffer and for some reason they have put me the designer and builder, I assure you I had nothing to do with this but dont know how to correct it,

I did get the lines for the gaffer many thanks have just been trying to figure out how you managed to get 16 layers have tried halving them then just figured I have not been counting the top two planks but now am sorted,

I have some very fine fir with tiny growth rings it comes for building bee hives so am going to slice of some of that for the hull, failing that I have some boxwood which will also do the job nicely,

thanks again

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
